Redness and visible vascular structures can be seen both on the body and the face. This is often caused by visible reddening or vascular structures, whereby blood vessels become dilated, causing a blockage of blood just below the skin. Consequently, small veins become visible or cause a scattered reddening of the skin.
On the body, we more often speak of persistent vascular structures, such as varicose veins and cherry warts. Redness in the face can manifest itself in various ways. Heat, exertion or hormonal fluctuations can cause redness that quickly disappears. Unfortunately, there are also forms of facial redness that are permanent. Think of rosacea or a wine stain.
Redness and visible vascular structures come in different forms. The most common:
Telangiectasia is redness in your face that won’t go away. Telangiectasia often occurs on your cheeks, chin or nose, but can also occur on your neck or décolleté. The vessels can sometimes feel burning or itchy.
Diffuse redness is referred to as redness or red spots on the face or neck and décolleté without visible vascular structures.
Rosacea is characterized by bright red discolorations, especially on the cheeks and nose. Other complaints in rosacea are bumps, pimples and visible blood vessels (the telangiectasias).
Redness and visible vascular structures on the body or face may occur. The redness and vascular structures can be treated effectively and safely with the appropriate IPL and/or laser equipment. If necessary, the affected and surrounding skin can also be supported with other treatment techniques such as chemical peels or camouflage therapy.
The treatment of redness and vessels is covered by the supplementary insurance. Depending on your health insurance conditions, you may be reimbursed for this. Check the policy conditions to see if the treatment is (partly) reimbursed.
